Before adding oil to your A6 Quattro, make sure that your engine was cold and that your car was parked on a level surface when you checked the oil level otherwise you won't be able to tell if your A6 Quattro has a low oil level.

This video shows you where the oil fill cap is located on your A6 Quattro and how to add oil. Adding too much oil to your A6 Quattro can be harmful, so it is easiest to add a little at a time.
